Chick-fil-A: Free Meal when You Dress Like a Cow (July 11, 2014)

Friday, July 4th, 2014

Mark your calendars!  Next Friday, July 11, is Chick-Fil-A’s Annual Cow Appreciation Day.  When you dress head to toe like a cow you can get a free meal or if you just wear a partial costume you’ll get a free entree.

Use this Cow Starter Kit to help create your costume or just use some creativity and cut out white or black spots from paper and tape or safety pin them to the opposite color clothing to get the cow look.

It didn’t work out for us to enjoy the Dress Like a Cow day last year but two years ago I decided last minute to go get in on the fun.  I created our “costumes” by using safety pins to attach white spots (cut out of regular paper) to our black clothing.  Then I quickly fashioned headbands and attached some black construction paper ears to it.  The poor ears wanted to flop a bit but it got us our meal- and my son thought it was a blast!  :)

If you go, definitely be prepared to wait a while.  This is a popular event!

Please note: Amazon prices can change at any time so please double check your price before purchasing!

Whohoo!  I just happened to notice that the Huggies wipes deal is back.

If you are wanting to stock up on wipes, Amazon has an awesome price right now.  You can get a 648 ct. box of Huggies Simply Clean wipes for just $10.97 (that’s just $0.017/wipe).  In case you are wondering, that’s like paying $1.22 for a 72 ct. pack of wipes!

(If you are an Amazon Mom, there is also a $2.00 coupon that you can clip making your cost even less!)

Here’s how to get the deal:

1.  Add to Huggies Simply Clean Baby Wipes, Refill, 648 Count your cart.  (Clip the $2 coupon if applicable.)

2.  If you want free shipping, add another $24.03 worth of qualifying items to your cart.  Of course if you have Amazon Prime your shipping will be free already.

3.  Pay for your purchase and wait for it to arrive at your door!

Stocking up when there are great deals like this is one of the 7 ways that I use to save on diapers and wipes.  It really does help stretch our budget!
